Last night was Hoop City's first ever Synchronized Hoop Jam! Some of us hooped in our living rooms, some of us hooped in the park with a full on hoop jam and some of us even hooped at work! The event was a huge success with over 80 members online for the chat session afterwards it was hard to keep track of the conversations as responses and messages flew at lighting speed across the screen. The energy was high and the enthusiasm was even higher! After the 1st half hour of the hoop jam I unleashed a brand new SURPRISE feature of Hoop City.
That's right, last night using a live streaming application I was able to teach two brand new moves to Hoop City members across the globe. The first trick we learned was an alteration to the Escalator dubbed the Escalator Axis Switch and then at the very end of the event after the prizes were drawn I provided another tutorial for all those who participated. We learned a twins move where we maintain the hoop above the head on the hand and the arm. Several hoopers were able to get the move RIGHT THEN! It was incredible and so much fun to be a part of. The winners were selected at random and allowed to choose their prize until all of the prizes were awarded. We started with three prizes but during the live chat I decided to add TWO more prizes; a second Hoop City Prize Pack and a Free Hoop City Class. Check out below to see the winners and congratulate them.
The live chat was an incredible experience and will open a new chapter for Hoop City. Members were able to connect in real time from all over the world. Several Hoop City Citizens in Europe even stayed up till 3 AM to participate! Another Live Chat is planned for the future, this time it will be at a time that will allow European hoopers to be online during the event. Stay tuned for more details on specific times and dates. Bless you all and thank you for making this event such an incredible experience for everyone!
